3 November 2021 – Palm Springs, CA: It’s almost time for Palm Springs Pride and residents and businesses are invited to decorate their storefront, home or apartment for the 2nd annual Light Up the Night contest presented by Alaska Airlines. KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs, Gay Desert Guide and VACAYA LGBT+ Vacations are sponsoring the contest on social media.  The deadline to enter the business contest is Thursday, November 4 at midnight; for the “at home” competition, the entry deadline is Friday, November 5 at midnight. 

“Palm Springs is known for its iconic, mid-century modern homes,” says Palm Springs Pride Executive Producer Ron De Harte. “We’re also known as the gayest and most welcoming city in America. This ‘light up your home’ with pride colors project will showcase that to the world.”

“Palm Springs Pride will be the first, and only, Pride Parade and Festival held fully since the start of the pandemic,” said Brad Fuhr, owner of KGAY Radio. “As always, our generous travel partners Alaska Airlines and VACAYA LGBT+ Vacations have stepped up and shown us their true colors and support for our community. So, get out those pink bulbs and rainbow LEDs and light up the night!”

The first contest is for businesses to create a store window display using pink and rainbow lights — and their creativity — to welcome visitors to Greater Palm Springs Pride.  The winning business will receive air travel for two to the Alaska Airlines destination of their choice. The second contest will follow for the “home edition” where participants can “Light Up the Night” at home for a chance to win a VACAYA LGBT+ Vacation for two to the Caribbean and air travel on Alaska Airlines.

To enter, people need to take a photo of their completed display, using the hashtags #ILoveGayPalmSprings AND #LightUptheNight from their Facebook or Instagram page. Their home, or business, will then be entered in the contest which runs now Friday, November 5 at midnight. One entry will be selected and that entrant will receive the roundtrip air travel for two on Alaska Airlines. To enter to go: (Business Contest). (At home contest sponsored by Vacaya), One entry per address allowed. No purchase necessary.
